  • You have to take Gran Torino for what it is. You can't take it too seriously but you shouldn't view it as a comedy either even though there are some parts where you're supposed to laugh.

      Its okay of a movie. Its a lot of back and forth from Denzel trying to negotiate with Travolta and that takes up a lot of the movie. Then they try to throw in 2 car wrecks that were stupid. There is a ton of cussing and one gory shooting scene where the people magically stay alive for a little longer although they have been shot 15 times. Its entertaining so it was worth the $6 for me but it doesnt get really into it until closer to the end. Travolta does pretty good even though I had my doubts. If he had a deeper voice he would have fit the role better.

          • I've probably said it before in this thread, but as plain as the poster is, I really love this poster, hell I might even buy it. Maybe it's because of that sexy man in the astronaut suit, I don't know

              • Watched The Big Lebowski, really good stuff by The Coen Brothers. I could understand why they gains such notoriety with this film, good comedy with a screwball story that eventually leads right back to the beginning. Jeff Bridges was brilliant, and I thought Philip Seymour Hoffman was perfect in his role

                      Which is why I thought he should play James Bond, Bruce Wayne, and Queen Elizabeth.

                              • Gran Torino = late 60s/early 70s muscle car.

                                Early 70s = time of Eastwood as vigilante cop in Dirty Harry.

                                Eastwood character in GT = neighborhood cranky vigilante...... sense of deja vu, anyone?

                                Height of arrogance = Eastwood informing the Academy it would be his last acting role in 2008. That translates as Give me that Best Actor statuette NOW! More Oscars for makers of very pedestrian & redundant films? I hope not.

                                Sorry, no Oscar for Clint for GT, he got his last hand job from the Academy after they screwed Scorsese that yr. for Million $ Baby. Maybe making sequels to & variations of the same hit movie called Dirty Harry (that his mentor Don Siegel directed, not Eastwood) might have something to do with Hollywood & the ticket-buying public being sick & tired of Eastwood in the same damn role.
